Every panaderia (bakery) in Puerto Rico has many flavors of flan, from vanilla to guava. Reduced-fat cream cheese gives this version a rich, comforting texture.

Can I double or triple this recipe?

I was thinking of using a 9x13 baking pan to make my flan but the volume is more than double the volume of the pyrex pie dish I normally use with this recipe.

What should i watch out for or do differently to make the larger quantity come out as good as the normal recipe size? Please Help!

Easy, Delicious, Authentic

I have taken this flan to any Latin themed potluck and it is the first thing to go every time! People that don't normally like flan can't get enough! I keep the ingredients as written but instead of mixing it in a mixer I through the egg and cheese in my vitamix and once that is mixed together, I add the milks and vanilla this way there isn't any cheese lumps and it takes all but 3 mins to mix. I also use a glass pie plate because I don't have a metal cake pan and it works famously!

Best Flan recipe ever

I have tried many types of flans but this one is by far the best. I have made this several times for myself and several work functions and everyone loves it. I have people begging me for the recipe and for me to make it.

Delicious, low fat
